But they have a clearly defined chart...


Seriously though, yeah I'd take that with all the same trust as an infomercial. It may be a decently performing TIM, but I wouldn't take their word for it...

I'll wait for reviews, although $15 is not that much of a stretch to try it IMO....

There must be some truth to their claims. Otherwise, Arctic Silver can sue the hell out of them.

AS has a well enough established brand name that this other company is not likely to be much of a threat.

I would certainly like to see some testing with air, water, IHS, bare die.
